Enduring Patience With Joy
Updated: Jun 10
Many of us have something we are waiting for. A job opportunity, a new relationship, a change in our financial situation...we are waiting for all kinds of change. We often grow tired of waiting.
It is hard to watch our friends have their prayers answered while we pray, and wait. It is hard to be happy for others when we feel like God isn't hearing our desperate cries. Why does God choose to bless some so richly while others feel like God isn't there?
The bible God tells us to wait patiently, to trust in the Lord, and be joyful. Trust in, not only, God's plan but God's timing. Trusting in the unknown can feel impossible. Isn't that the very definition of faith? Believing without seeing.
I pray today you find trust in God's timing, in God's plan while you wait. Pray to God, not only for the desires of your heart, but for God to fill you with patience and peace.
Trust that God has plans for you and those plans are good. God has something in store for you so great, you can't even imagine it. Believe it.
Rest in hope, rest in peace, rest in God. Let go and be confident in knowing, really knowing, better days are coming.
Praise the Lord today! This could be the day everything changes! If not, pray God's glory overcomes you. Pray God's Holy Spirit to overwhelm you, as you endure waiting with patience and joy.
"We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy." Colossians 1:11
